It is what it is!

I have been reading the different strategies from the Spark Diet. Strategy two talks about making small changes first. I particularly noticed this paragraph:
"Your life is what it is. Ideal or not, that’s your dieting starting point. You’ll be a lot happier, a lot saner -- and a lot thinner -- if you work with your existing lifestyle instead of against it. Ignoring realities of your daily life just invites failure and frustration." (From SP Diet strategies)
I am trying to figure out how work this into my perspective on the world. I tend to think of my daily life as a "temporary" challenge, so I end up putting stuff - and indeed, I enjoy biking and hiking and running, so even stuff I enjoy - putting stuff off.
Instead of thinking how hard it will be to exercise as a resident, I need to be creative about solutions - walk or bike to work, always have workout clothes with me, etc. I can do it, if I choose to do it.
